2 Days

Jun, Sep




  • Discover Abruzzo, a scenic region of Italy.
  • Learn the basic notions of alpine climbing.
  • Immerse yourself in a unique natural environment.


If you can climb indoor walls and want to try the real mountain, this trip is for you. Follow me to Abruzzo, Italy, for a 2-day alpine rock climbing course!

Abruzzo is a region in southern and central Italy, stretching from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea. Known as “the greenest region in Europe”, half of its territory is protected by national parks and protected reserves. Its mountainous region boasts a vast plateau, including Gran Sasso, the highest peak of the Apennines, and Mount Majella.

On this 3-day course, I will take you to the best spots of Abruzzo for an exciting alpine climbing course. With many rock peaks soaring skywards, we will face a stunning high altitude universe. Furthermore, we will immerse ourselves in a unique natural environment featuring narrow gorges, wild valleys, lush forests, and beautiful lakes and waterfalls!

The goal of my program is that you learn the basic skills of alpine rock climbing: security techniques, knots, equipment usage, rope climbing, maps, and environmental aspects. At the end of this experience, you will deal independently with the easy multi-pitch routes of the Apennines (grades III and IV)!

Please note that this course requires basic knowledge of indoor sport climbing, basic safety and knotting techniques, and a good fitness level (for 1-2 h of climbing).

So, if you are ready to jump from the gym to the real rocks, please contact me. Come to Abruzzo for an exciting 2-day alpine rock climbing course!

During the winter, you can also join this thrilling snowkiting program in this same area.

About the guide

I'm a certified Mountain guide (IFMGA) and physician of L'Aquila. My curiosity and enthusiasm took me to the mountains of the world: North America, Norway, Turkey, Morocco, Iran, Kirghistan, Alaska,Gerogia,Canada guiding on ski touring trips and for climbing. Being fascinated by the high mountains in summer I divide my time guiding among the 4000m of the Alps, being based at Chamonix and Briancon. In winter I ski with my clients on the mountains of the Apennine – Gran Sasso, escaping sometimes for travelling towards a new climb or a new place to ski.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
